Connector

Connector:
"Only complaint would be the size of the 3.5mm jack which could get in the way of other plugs adapters."
_
"These cables sometimes would disconnect and you would have to position them a certain way, and also the aux jack broke off into my phone, so I image it's bad quality."
_
"So this was great until the tip of the jack broke off inside my Galaxy S5 and costed me $100 to fix."
_
"A lot of people I have talked to complain about the molded connectors, and how they are not repairable, however the inexpensive price and the factory construction make these cables ideal."
_
"The only problem is the 1 8 end is too thick around the connector to hook to most phones without taking them out of the case."
_
"Ok I give this a 3 because of this when i purchased it i purchased three to plug in to the mixing board which they work great however if you constantly changing from one jack to the next is where you going to run in to the problem with the headphone jack so just handle them with care other wise you will be like me while the other 2 did work until i either bent the head phone jack or something cause i'm on the go with even live events along with my radio show."
_
"Be careful with the 3.5mm stereo connector it seems easily breakable due to the rubber sealing."
_
"So this was great until the tip of the jack broke off inside my Galaxy S5 and costed me $100 to fix."
